Has this happened to you, a khajiit or argonian geared head to toe in heavy armor that covers your whole body ready for battle when all of a sudden a NB surprise attacks you cutting off your exposed tail the shock of loosing it stunning you until you die? The solution: Tail armor using a script similar to this mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/31728/? you can now protect that exposed tail just by wearing your favorite greaves. But that is not all folks by adapting various armor styles you can protect that tail from hostile environments like the blistering Alikir Desert all the way up to the harsh winters of skyrim no longer will you loose that tail to frostbite or get heatstroke because you neglected to cover that tail. the best part is that like helmets you can decide not to wear them if you want to but no true warrior should go without. post now to order enough posts may get it delivered ;) .

    Groovy concept. I'm down. I never considered just making them part of existing armor. I always suggested they be adornments. I like your idea better.

    Maybe there's some crazy huge artery that is in their tail and if it gets cut they bleed out and die.

    But if THAT were the case wouldn't we see Argonian tail armor?

    Since there ISN'T armor on Argonian tails it would be safe to conclude that they aren't overly concerned with protecting their tails.

    Since they aren't concerned with protecting their tails... I think it's not too far a leap to conclude that they do, indeed, grow back. If they didn't, I would think they would want to protect them.

    I dunno @RAGUNAnoOne , agility? Argonian tails are like croc-tails. Thick and meaty, not very floaty. Khajiit tails are ALMOST prehensile. Whippy and quick. I would assume that only a swift chop to the base of the tail would sever it, otherwise the tail would just dart out of the way. You know... bendy like a reed in the wind and all that.

    The tail is used for balance, if it was constricted they would be even more foolish looking than they are now.

    Say tors did you enjoy the show >:)

    The fact that a tail is essential for balance is the reason it should be protected in a huge battle plus if you are going on a trip to alikir does it really make sense to leave your tail exposed while you cover everything else up like you should?

    It might look awesome and a better way to add it is by allowing ppl to select via options menu if they want tail armor or not just like with helms.

    Tail armor would make a good deal of sense. For argonians anyhow, their tail is muscular enough to make an armored sheath plausible.
    Khajiit... well... a slim catty tail is not all that well built for armoring, I could see khajiit warriors cutting off their tails as to not give opponents an advantage in battle, and then wearing their stumpy tails as badge of honor...

    This is a fantastic suggestion OP.

    When I read your thread title I thought you wanted the tails to be hidden inside the armour to "protect / hide" it, after reading your suggestion I think it would be a great addition to this game 100% behind this.

    Here's something I found today that suggests something like tail armor should already exist in the lore:

    Lqkx930.png

    I would imagine that khajiit already wear some kind of tail armor (even if it's not depicted in the game), and it's probably just extremely hard to chop them off.

    I see Khajiit "armor" being more adornment than armor.

    like...

    And I wish we could choose different tail options for both Khajiit and Argonians. Short tails, damaged tails, severed tails.

    More Options is always ALWAYS preferable over less options.
